25562650_1511375753.6104_funddescriptionHolly is my vibrant 8 yr old daughter that suffered an aneurysm and then it caused a seizure. She had to have CPR preformed twice and there was minimal pulse for a few minutes. She was care flighted out to Children's hospital here in Dallas. When she got here, it was touch and go and her chances were unknown. She managed to pull through like the fighter she is. They did an emergency stent to drain fluid and reduce swelling in her brain. She was medically paralyzed and had a number of medications to help control her blood pressure. Her lungs and heart are weak and she has a breathing tube and will for a few days. After weaning her off certain medications were were able to see if she could respond. We didn't know if she was still in there but she is!! She has kept herself stable enough for 3D scans of her brain and a look into what to do next. The CAT scans showed she has a cluster of abnormal vessels at the base of her brain that need to be dealt with. Right now we are taking it one small step at a time and are greatful that our sweet Holly is still here with us.

Hi everyone,
I know it's been a long while since I've put an update up but life can get hectic so I apologize. As of right now, we are lowering Hollys oxygen intake and hopefully within the next few months we can get her off the ventilator. She has her good days and bad but we haven't had to go to the hospital for any set backs so that's always positive. We are trying her speaking valve today and let's see what she does. At times I feel her closer to me and it gives me hope. Therapy is going well so we are just hoping her little brain kicks it in gear. Maybe I can get a video of her making sounds for the first time! Again, thank you for everything and the prayers and support. Our goal is to hopefully get her some stem cell therapy and eventually once she is off completely from the ventilator oxygen hyperbaric treatment that is close to home. We are gonna try whatever we can to give this girl a chance and get our baby back. Again thank you for everything.

Sorry for the large gaps in updates. Hollybell was in the hospital for a while for a shunt infection and pneumonia. She had a shunt replacement and is finally back home resting more calmly. We did a swallow test a few days ago and she didnt care for applesauce but sure did swallow down that pancake syrup! Its baby steps all the way but little by little I will get my baby back. Thank you to everyone who keeps her in your thoughts.

Well last week baby girl had a temperature and was throwing up. Grandma and me took her to the ER in the early morning and she got diagnosed with MRSA in her lungs and brain shunt. She got admitted into ICU again and has been taking antibiotics and had to have her shunt removed this past Monday. She is doing good and responding very well to the antibiotics and will have a new shunt put in in a few days. Doctor told us we caught it pretty early and thankfully it didnt get worse. This girl doesn't seem to catch a break but she keeps prevailing.
